We are Ben and Tara of The Little Moon, a Melbourne based home-wares business daring to be different. What began as a throwback to our childhood fascination for the natural beauty of rocks and minerals, soon became a hungry desire to source the finest, most unique specimens that we could find, to share with a curious public wishing to adorn their inner city homes with a touch of nature.
With artistic backgrounds both, we source rocks and minerals from established ethical sources, hand selecting each and every piece for their luxurious beauty, sculptural qualities, colour, good vibes and scientific intrigue. We want to transcend the modern day expectations of what owning rocks and minerals means, by re-introducing the beauty of nature as something attainable in our hands and in our homes.
Our fascination with nature's beauty inspired us to roll up our sleeves and create some beauty with nature. Using the finest quality Italian marble, we began personally hand cutting, honing and crafting a bespoke range of decadent, timeless marble home-wares. Made in Ben’s dad’s garage, using his granddad’s old tools, we are slowly adding more products to our range, our emphasis on quality over quantity.
